Alfresco, Cleeve Review

Alfresco makes the most of its rural position with a sparkling glass covered terrace at the front where you can dine in an outside-but-inside scenario even if the weather isn’t the best. There were sheep bleating happily in a nearby field as we strolled in, but we knew that were telling fibs about spring bursting […]

Dao Chao Chinese Restaurant, Broad Quay, Bristol Review

Dau Chao restaurant is the very new kid on the block at Broad Quay having been open for only a month or so. The décor is comfortable but casual with floor to ceiling windows giving a spectacular view across the city centre ideal for people-watching and seeing the world go about its business. What could […]

Indian Rasoi, Gloucester Road Review

Open since December last year Indian Rasoi is the second venture for the team behind it who already have a following amongst the curry connoisseurs in the Gloucester Road community.

The George Inn, Wedmore Review

A very handsome building, Grade II Listed and dating from the 16th century, the George Inn has been a lofty presence on Church Street, Wedmore for some six hundred years.

Black Cumin, Cotham, Bristol Review

Only open since December 2023, Black Cumin is very new and packs a punch when it comes to the on-trend interior but most of all its eclectic approach to serving traditional Indian cuisine with an authentic modern twist. Boasting a Michelin Guide Head Chef whose inspiration was first garnered from his home cooking, but then […]

Marco Pierre White Steakhouse And Grill Restaurant, Cadbury House Hotel Review

The Marco Pierre White Steakhouse and Grill restaurant housed within the Cadbury House Hotel is a rare treat and much worth the trip out of town even if you are not staying at the hotel. Arriving at the elegant and luxuriously furnished bar we were offered drinks before dinner but side-stepped this offer as although […]

Parkgate Hotel, Cardiff Review

The Parkgate Hotel in Cardiff is part of the Celtic Collection, the luxury brand for hotels of distinction and timeless elegance. Opening in 2021 it occupies one of the city’s most historic buildings, the former Head Post Office and the old County Court; wonderfully architecturally appealing on the outside and splendidly impressive within. Proud to […]

Starlings, Queen’s Road, Bristol, Review

Starlings isn’t just for breakfast but hosts a number of intriguing events: “singles mingling drinks evening” (sadly we didn’t meet any of the criteria, not single and way out of the age range of 22-32 years old), “Greenhouse Plant-based kitchen supper” and “Rino Di Donato Italian/Japanese Fusion Supper Club” – who knew such a thing […]

Harbour House, The Grove, Bristol Review

Harbour House occupies an enviable position on the stretch of waterfront overlooking the harbour, its terrace in sight of the magnificent spire of St May Redcliffe, and opposite the pastel dappled colours of the serene Georgian terrace at Redcliffe Parade. Naturally there’s a nautical feel about the place but it has a vibe of being […]
